Wellness in Properties
The Quayside: WELL pre-certified Gold level
The International WELL Building Institute™introduced its WELL Building Standard™in 2014, which promotes and supports human health and awareness through implementation, validation and measurement of wellness features within developments. The Quayside is one of the first projects to achieve Gold-level (Core & Shell) WELL Certification in Hong Kong.
At The Quayside, for instance, a designated fitness podium – fully equipped with cycling machines, a jogging track and an open space for yoga – is introduced to encourage tenants to stay active and embrace the outdoors. Furthermore, tenants can enjoy premium drinking water using Osmosis water machines and familiarize themselves with the farm-to-table concept through harvesting at our roof-top urban farm.
Wellness in Communities
LP6 Eco Rich – TKO Streetathon
As part of LP6’s Eco-Rich campaign, we co-organized a night run event, TKO Streetathon, with RunOurCity and Social Ventures Hong Kong in July 2018 for the Tseung Kwan O community. Professional street running coaches were invited to teach the proper running forms and warm-up routines before a streetathon was held across different landmarks in Tseung Kwan O.
Wellness at Workplace
Wellness Programmes for all employees
Covering all aspects of daily life, our workplace wellness programmes include introducing table tennis facilities in the office, weekly fitness workshops, health talks and interest classes, designed to strengthen the bond between our staff and to elevate the quality of their work lives.

Nan Fung Life Sciences Aging Research Fund is one of the prime examples of our work here.
People are our greatest asset and our inspiration to make change.
“In Time Of” Programme
Since its founding in 1945, Nan Fung Group has been advocating for social co-creation, engaging every stakeholder in the community. Inspired by the concept of a Resilient City, “In Time Of” programme is the Group’s community initiative that connects people from all walks of life through social partnerships in sustainability, social design, and culture and arts.
Through “In Time Of”, we partner with NGOs, social enterprises and community designers to develop programmes that support the neighbourhoods in sustainable development, social well-being and inclusive growth.
Bringing Communities Together
The Mills Community Programmes
The Mills’ weekly community programmes strive to unify the public through arts and cultural workshops, inviting everyone to take part and interact. In February 2019, we also partnered with HKRITA to take our knitting workshop into the neighborhood, where old yarn was woven into scarves and donated to seniors.
Co-learn workshops at the Centre for Heritage, Arts and Textile (“CHAT”)
Giving back to the community comes in many forms and cultural education is something that we particularly value. Through CHAT, the public can learn about Hong Kong's textile industry and innovation through interactive experiences. In 2017, CHAT organized “CHAT GET SET – Hey! Let’s WEAVE!” with a series of cultural tours and weaving activities in Tsuen Wan to bring the community together.
In 2018, we partnered with Project WeCan, a Business-in-Community initiative, which encourages disadvantaged students to pursue higher education and a career they aspire to. Since then, we have provided financial and volunteering support to partnered schools, including Lingnan Dr. Chung Wing Kwong Memorial Secondary School.
The Mills Summer Programme
Every summer since 2017, The Mills hosts a 4-week Summer Program designed for secondary school students, which gives them a taste of the entrepreneurship and craftsmanship that have shaped the techstyle industry through visits to textile companies and sales channels, hands-on product development and designer sharing sessions.
In 2018, Nan Fung Property Management was committed as Manpower Developers in the ERB Summer Internship Programme. We provided internship opportunities and arranged mentors to offer on-the-job guidance and support for senior high schoolers. These real-world experiences enabled them to make informed choices of their future careers.
Scholarships and Funds
Nan Fung has donated scholarships and funds to different educational institutions and initiatives to empower the youth. For instance, various scholarships were awarded to outstanding students in the MA Arts and Cultural Enterprise programme co-organized by HKU SPACE and Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, London.
Nan Fung Volunteering Team
Our volunteering team works with major charities such as Heep Hong Society and Direction Association for the Handicapped. Major volunteering activities include Community Chest Corporate Challenge, A Day with Food Angel, Lok Sin Tong Flag Day, OneSky Charity Hike and Run for Wellness 2018.
PRC Community Initiatives
Over the years, we have also supported community programmes in the PRC by providing all-round assistance. The establishment of “Home of Nan Fung” at The Place, Shanghai, bridges the local community by offering multi-functional space and recreational facilities for public use. We also support The Library Project, which promotes literacy among children in need.
Living by a green protocol
that elevates lives
Gold / Platinum Awards
Green building certifications
Nan Fung developments have received multiple awards on greenness and sustainability. Our Kai Tak development, AIRSIDE for instance, received the 1st BEAM Plus Final Platinum Certificate of Neighborhood in Hong Kong, while The Quayside was awarded the Green Building Award by the Hong Kong Green Building Council.
Advancing energy efficiency
In response to “Hong Kong’s Climate Action Plan 2030+”, we reviewed the overall energy management of our existing buildings and strived to cut down 21% of our total energy consumption. By utilizing big data analysis, Nan Fung Tower and TKO Plaza have been projected to reduce 13-16% of their electricity consumption by 2020.
Enhancing waste management
We reinforce the importance of reuse and recycle by upgrading the waste management facilities in properties managed by us. We are avid advocates of sustainable waste management and support various schemes, such as the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling Programme.
Shaping the green economy with retail partners
Nan Fung Place has been a member of the Green Shop Alliance of HKGBC since 2016. We create a discerning lifestyle by working with retail brands that promote nature, sustainability and overall wellness. Over 70% of our retail partners celebrate green living and wellness in The Mills and Nan Fung Place.
Contributing to environmental protection with customers
“I AM ECO-RICH” is an overarching concept at LP6, where we incorporated green appliances such as Miele steamers in our standard provisions to advocate a more sustainable lifestyle among residents. Eco-friendly handover gifts, such as food bags and tote bags, are given out to new purchasers to promote the culture of reuse.
